Additional Information: The book, Design as Democracy (Island Press, 2017) intends to reinvigorate democratic design through framing the need, providing inspirational techniques, and sharing case stories in a range of contexts. Laura Lawson will speak to the origins of the book project and its framing to address various stages in the design and implementation process, while Richard Alomar will speak to his technique, “sketching together.” Together they will discuss how the book can be used and their hopes for its connection to our profession.
